THE BLESSINGS FOR THOSE WHO FEAR THE LORD

PSALM 128

THE BLESSINGS FOR THOSE WHO FEAR THE LORD

Over the years I have heard people preach messages and write books about the fear of the Lord in such a way, that people are moved to operate their life out of legalism, resulting in an exterior of religion, while internally they are burdened by condemnation and shame. Not Good.

THE DEVIL IS A BOX BUILDER WHILE JESUS IS A BOX BREAKER.

The fear of the Lord brings positive results to our lives:
· It is the foundation of wisdom and understanding. Proverbs 15.33
· It keep us from evil and our lives on track Proverbs 14.16
· It is a source of strong confidence Proverbs 14.26
· It is a spring of life Proverbs 14.2
· It inspires us to walk uprightly Proverbs 14.2
· It opens the door to God’s mercy Psalm 103.11
· It brings to our lives riches and honour Proverbs 22.4

I often read these verses and I find myself going, WOW!!!!!!!!

On our journey of ascent, let’s keep our heart open to God and walk in the fear of the Lord.
